Winemaker's Notes

This single vineyard bottling is a striking example of the power and finesse of Monterey Chardonnay. Rich aromas of banana, citrus, and pineapple give way on the palate to tightly integrated flavors of tropical fruit, pear, butterscotch, vanillin-oak. The wines satisfying, creamy mouthfeel is balanced and extended through the long finish by refreshing acidity. Traditional accompanying dishes would include most fish and poultry recipes, as well as creamy-sauced pastas. At the historic family winery, Mirassou Chef de Cuisine David Page will pour this rare wine alongside his Pan-Seared Bass with Roasted Fennel, Tomato Confit, and Salsa Verde.
